Mosquitoes in Queens County
Many people today are familiar with the Zika virus. We have seen the effect that the virus can cause but many do not know how it is spread. Mosquitoes spread the Zika virus. It is a deadly disease spread by a particular species of mosquito. Our Queens County pest control experts at Queens County Pest Control offers an effective way of eliminating your mosquito problem.
Even though not every mosquito bite is deadly, they can be very irritating when they bite. It is the female mosquito that bites to feed on human blood, which helps to create eggs. The adult female mosquito can lay up to 100 eggs at a time. Both the male and female mosquito also feed on the nectar from flowers.
Not everyone feeds on human blood, some are predatory, and they eat other mosquitoes. You’re fortunate if you have this type of problem. If mosquitoes continuously bite you, you might have to consider the possibility of an infestation. To avoid this from occurring, you will need to be vigilant in your efforts to make sure that you do not end up with a mosquito infestation. Here are some helpful ways to avoid an outbreak.
Eliminate any freestanding water around your home:
- Pools – Many people who have pools do not thoroughly drain them. Any standing water in the bottom of the pool will attract mosquitoes.
- Low hanging pots – These can also collect water that mosquitoes will be attracted to.
- Gutters – Keep gutters free of debris that will get wet and create the type of environment that mosquitoes thrive in.
